(There we go!  It’s kind of funny how the Wizard and all three of Dorothy’s Yellow Brick Road companions were all originally Broadway/Vaudeville actors.  They all played multiple roles in the movie, with Frank Morgan – Wiz – playing five separate parts!  Pretty neat, huh?  We have a new clue word today, in “impish”, and all but the jumble for “upend” are new.  ralis95 will have to update his world famous clue word database!  The answer letter layout was a nice jumble as well.  The cartoon does a great job of capturing the scene.  Lots of great detail; Dorothy’s basket, and Toto at her feet, the high windows, and the curtain that the fraudulent “Wizard” hid behind.  The Scarecrow is spot on too.  But, I don’t remember the Wizard being bald.  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
